Teachers have a separate research space with computer and internet facilities where they can carry out academic subject research or other related work. The library's mandate is to foster independent, life-long learning through collaboration, providing information and learning resources, instructions and technology.

Regular newsletters and information regarding routine activities are emailed to parents.

Learning by doing is the most effective way of learning. The school provides the most modern labs which are continually upgraded.
Theory is incomplete without practical. One needs to completely get involved in the various practical experiments whether it be Chemistry, Biology or Physics, to get a thorough knowledge and understanding of what had been taught in the theory class.
Labs are neatly arranged with a view to a fresh approach. When a student walks in, the Lab assistant and the teacher both assist him / her in understanding and undertaking experiments.
Greenwood High aims to ensure that every student strengthens his / her knowledge of theory with lively practicals which will be remembered for ever.
“A healthy mind in a healthy body”. Keeping this in mind the school promotes and encourages a number of sports activities. In addition to the two periods a week compulsory allotted to physical education, four periods a week (from the 5th grade upwards) are allotted for club activities. Students may opt for any three activities from a given list. The sports activities available include tennis, football, basketball, volleyball. Professional swimming and athletic coaches are available to train the students and ensure that they become ace performers. In fact though the school is but eight years old our students have won laurels in inter-school competitions in swimming, football and basketball. After school activities are conducted for extra coaching on selected sports.

Freshness in approach, Openness of enquiry, breadth of study, creativity in argument and invention, independence of mind, and ambition for real quality: these are the keynotes in our approach to education, and we hope our students will embrace them with energy. The harmonious relationship between student and teacher is vital to our success. We believe in encouraging intellectual and cultural diversity, and aim at developing our pupils’ sense of responsibility towards the wider community.
It is also our aim to offer a dynamic environment where each student is challenged and encouraged to become a critical and compassionate thinker, dedicated learner for life, a contributing member of the local and global community, showing respect and understanding for other cultures and acknowledging that others can be different and also right. The school pledges not to make its children apprehensive of their limitations. Instead we encourage them to discover their own potential and develop it in our ‘Total learning Environment’.
The school provides excellent national and international education through the promotion of high academic standards, international understanding, parental involvement, and strives to be a centre of professional and curriculum development. The school’s endeavor will be to create global citizens who are collaborative, communicative, enquiring, respectful and creative individuals with a passion for lifelong learning.
